I think I speak for a lot of people when I say `WHAT IS GOING ON?`.....Is Fury Road going to made or not?and can someone explain to me why a film such as MAD MAX,which is such a part of Australian culture has to have it`s third sequel made in Namibia? and finally if this film does get made,do you think Mel Gibson will regain his once Aussie accent for the role,because a MAD MAX4 with an American accent just wont cut it for me.George and Mel please..........give us fans what we want and get on with it,we`ve waited long enough!.

Man, was weiss ich ... Vielleicht wird es einmal ein viertes Kapitel der Mad Max-Saga geben. Anscheinend nicht. G. Miller wartet auf dei Gelengenheit einen neunen Film zu drehen, aber du musst dich in Geduld ausuben um eine Vortzetzung zu sehen ...

Want my opinion? Of course you do.

It's a simple return on investment gamble. Movies in general have endured a tough year , revenue-wise. T3 was even struggling to turn a profit. After about 7 weeks in theatres, the US box office take was a little over $53 million.

This is where big budget projects at are in the works get stalled. MM4 is big budget at $104 Million. A studio can be dedicated to film but must release the film at a time for the best possible return on the monetary investment.

Movie start dates is another issue. The way I see, it Miller is dedicated to the movie and has $104 million in production commitment from 20th Century Fox. Jim Gianopulos, Chariman of Fox sudios, demands the highest possible profit from a business stand point. Most are hoping that 2005 will be a better year for film revenue.

We can all hope the same. Follow the money and you'll find the reason.

It's all a real shame, I was looking forward to this even more perhaps than the fourth Indiana Jones.

I'm not being funny here but could the delay/cancellation have anything to do with Twentieth Century Fox passing on the distribution of 'The Passion'? Mel Gibson was unlikely to be too happy about that.
